About us

Living Seas Wales is a Wales wide coastal project brought to you by North Wales Wildlife Trust and The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, thanks to money raised by players of the National Lottery Heritage Fund and players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

Living Seas Wales

Through the project we’ll be exploring, recording and sharing people’s marine memories, from special wildlife moments to tales about fishing and opinions on how the Welsh marine environment has changed. You can join our Living Seas Team for a strandline search, picnic with a porpoise or even get a glimpse of life underwater on a seashore safari.  And that’s not all! If you love spending time by the sea and want to become involved in our marine conservation work then you can join our amazing volunteer team.
